Thanks for writing in.
I would definitely advise you to go for a cardiac evaluation just to rule out the possibility of heart disease
.This would include ECG, ECHO, Stress test
Another possibility is gastritis/ indigestion/acidity can also mimic symptoms of a heart attack
. If the bloated stomach and arm pain is due to acidity, a tablet of pantoprazole
40 mg once a day half an hour before breakfast for 2 weeks might help.
In addition , do try to follow the below mentioned measures:
If you are overweight
, do try to reduce your weight.
Avoid deep fried ,oily food,spicy food, carbonated beverages, alcohol & smoking.
Do yoga/relaxation exercise to reduce stress. Stress also contributes to acidity.
Regular exercise 30-45 minutes daily for 5 days a week.
Have smaller frequent meals rather than 3 large meals.
Have warm water at regular intervals.
Hope this helps.
